I believe the shrimp special starts about four in the afternoon. A nice stop before heading back out on the ferry.

Every time I go to Ocracoke Smacs is a must. I love the atmosphere and they have great food. You can watch the boats pull in while you eat and a mimosa is a must. I love this place!!

We ventured to Ocracoke the weekend after Thanksgiving. A lot of businesses had already closed, and this was the last weekend for sMacNally's. It was a beautiful day - sunny & 70 degrees. This place is small, but very quaint. Sits right on the water; very casual. Dog friendly. The hostess & our waitress were very pleasant. We ordered a... More

A terrible way to be introduced to Ocracoke! The only thing worse than the so called food was the service! The only reason this place is in business is location- location- location- the worst flounder sandwich I have ever been served and the absolute worst waitresses period-they acted as if they were doing you a large favor waiting on you-not...

The hamburger was average but eh beer was cold and the view of the water front incredible. The server was not friendly and even scowled at us. Would we go back? Oh yeah, I might scowl back this time.

Best known for their excellent burgers and relaxing sitting on water next to ferry landing. Lively bar scene with friendly staff and patrons. After a long days drive and ferry crossing was a great place to share a drink, sandwich and relax while watching the water.

Lunch was very good. It was hard to fine seats for 6, but a couple moved so we could sit at a big table. Burger's were wonderful. Staff nice and friendly.
